1 --> We have a viable framework for an associate degree level programme, from second opportunity secondary studies, to bridging studies to a plainly viable Associate degree.
2 --> We have a programme structure ["architecture"], based on the classic Greek Temple model, as is illustrated above.
3 --> We have a demonstration course that shows the feasibility of online content delivery and that of a powerful survey theology course as a means to give backbone to "lay leaders" in training for the church, the NCSTS street level systematic theology survey.
4 --> We have several possible modes of delivery (as this post discusses)
5 --> We have a tested layout for a microcampus centre multimedia training facility (as is illustrated above)
6 --> We have an idea of what it would cost to run the system, and can estimate what it would cost to set up such microcampus centres, case by case.
7 --> Thanks to the broad penetration of broadband internet in the region, and the affordable availability of computer and network technologies (as well as of technical support people) we have a viable basis for a cybercampus and for access points in communities.
8 --> Because of the coming wave of 7" Android tablet PCs with vinyl folders and keyboards for approx. US$ 100, we have a viable ebook reader and computing platform for students:
9 --> The rise of similar thin client PCs [of similar internal power to the tablet or smart phone, but able to access "cloud" resources through the local server or the general internet) that can piggyback on LCD monitors and integrate with a server for each local network, gives us a cost effective network technology for microcampus centres.
10 --> The rise of digital library technologies and the possibility of suitable partners in the region [i.e. existing seminary libraries with appropriate staff and facilities] means that we can credibly develop a major reference resource for education and training.
